Bruce Highway—Mogilno Road intersection upgrade south of Bob's Creek safety works

We have upgraded the Mogilno Road intersection on the Bruce Highway with protected right-hand turn lanes and 1.5km of safety works including extension of drainage structures and installation of wide centre line treatment, between Bajool and Rockhampton in Central Queensland.

We delivered 2 distinct projects under the one contract. The 2 projects are:

Mogilno Road intersection

This project included upgrading the an intersection and installation of auxiliary left turn and protected right-hand turns at the Mogilno Road intersection on the Bruce Highway, approximately 14km south of Rockhampton. Protected right hand turning lanes improve safety by separating through and turning traffic, reducing the potential for rear-end crashes.

South of Bob’s Creek safety works

The safety works south of Bob’s Creek Road included 1.5km of formation (road) widening including extension of drainage structures and installation of wide centre-line treatment which provides motorists greater separation between opposing lanes of traffic.

The Bruce Highway Upgrade Program is jointly funded by the Australian Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, and the Queensland Government, through the Department of Transport and Main Roads. The Bruce Highway Upgrade Program is a $12.6 billion 15-year program of works (2013-14 to 2027-28) to improve safety, flood resilience and capacity along the Bruce Highway.
